So unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve heard about the new Marvel/Disney merger. With Disney now owning everything at the house that Stan Lee built, everyone and their uncle is focusing in on what this will mean for Marvel comics and movies. But what about summer vacations? For years one of the big selling points for going to Universal Studios was the Marvel characters.

But now that Disney owns Marvel, you know that they’re going to make Marvel themed rides, have Spider-Man walking around the park, etc. What does this mean for Disneyland’s #1 rival Universal Studios? I bet those hot shots who got rid of the King Kong ride aren’t feeling so smart now, are they? (Don’t worry they’re rebuilding it…) So much for the Hulk ride. Then again, I bet Disney will make better costumes than this:

I still want to go to Universal Studios circa 1993. Someone get me a time machine so I can go back and visit. Of course I’ll be going there to look at Back to the Future stuff. Word.

One Response to Universal Studios to Suck?

    I have actually never been to either Universal Studios or Disney World/Land. It does sound like taking down the King Kong ride was dumb, regardless of the Marvel issue. I wonder if the Marvel attractions will remain for awhile due to existing contracts?
